Vuckovic awarded Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship

October 2013

Electrical Engineering Professor Jelena Vuckovic has been awarded a Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship from the Institute for Advanced Study at the Technical University in Munich, Germany. 

Up to four fellows (from any science/engineering field) are named per year, and they are given freedom and funding to pursue research activities in collaboration with TUM on high risk/high reward projects, without burden of writing proposals. The fellowship is named after Hans Fischer, a TUM faculty who was awarded a Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work on hemoglobin.
